Injured in Wisconsin? Beware Shady Insurance Websites and Companies
If you’ve recently been injured, you’re first call is usually to your insurance company and you’re second call is to find an injury lawyer in Wisconsin. Your hope is always that both of these parties can help and will have your best interest in mind.
Sadly. That’s not always the case.
Our injury lawyers in Wisconsin have spoken to a number of people who feel they have been misled or even betrayed by their insurance provider.
The newest disturbing trend was recently explored by an article at Philly.com. Private insurance companies are building their websites to give the impression that you’re linking to a government site.
In fact, regulators across the country have told agents to change these websites, because they are misleading.
“We all need to be on the lookout right now. We don’t want consumers to get confused,” said Jessica Waltman of the National Association of Health Underwriters, a trade association representing agents and brokers.
In Pennsylvania, a licensed broker’s website featured a logo mimicking the state seal and said, “Welcome to the Pennsylvania Health Exchange!” They were quickly forced to take down PAhealthexchange.com a day after the state insurance department’s enforcement bureau called.
